Electronics Recycling Event Sponsored by Redemption Episcopal Church and Warminster Township
Safely dispose of old electronics while supporting ex-offenders reentering the workforce
WARMINSTER, PA (March 29, 2017) – Looking for a place to safely dispose of all those old electronics? Redemption Episcopal Church and Warminster Township are sponsoring an Electronics Recycling Event Saturday, June 10, 2017 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Warminster Community Park, 350 E. Bristol Road, Warminster.
Simply drive up and volunteers will unload your old electronics. The following are accepted: laptops, desktops, tablets, printers, scanners, fax machines, cell phones, keyboards, iPods, MP3 players, Fitbits, VCRs, DVD players, cords, game systems, etc. CRT TVs/monitors are $30/each (flat screen TVs/monitors and all other items are free of charge). All computer drives are safely wiped clean.
This event benefits PAR-RecycleWorks, a non-profit organization supporting ex-offenders as they transition into the workforce. More than half of all people leaving prison or on probation are unemployed. Over 60 percent will be rearrested within three years after their release. Taking the electronic waste and other recyclables provided by residents, faith-based organizations, corporate and educational partners, PAR-RecycleWorks deconstructs these items, recycles the materials and disposes of the waste safely and cleanly. The scrap metals and other reusable materials collected in this process are then sold to help pay for salaries and job skill development for formerly incarcerated men and women to support their productive re-entry back into society.
